The Ife Traditional Council has formally announced the death of Oba Okunade Sijuwade.
The chiefs, accompanied by Prince Tokunbo Sijuwade, officially announced the demise of the monarch while meeting with Governor Rauf Aregbesola at the Government House in Osogbo today.
One of the chiefs, Oba Solomon Omisakin, told the governor that the Ooni had joined his ancestors.
Earlier in the day, the Isoros were seen in some parts of Ile Ife singing dirges, which is one of the precursors leading to the formal announcement of the death of the Ooni.
